Mission & Values

We are a small but dedicated unit of professionals who believe in the impact of health promotion, advocacy, and education. Our team works collaboratively to deliver effective educational programming and intervention services to students at the University of Washington. Our goal is to foster a community where individual agency is powered to positively impact health and well-being in our communities and in our own lives.  LiveWell is committed to raising awareness, promoting community and accountability, and teaching life-long practices for health and well-being. 


LiveWell draws on the combined strength of the individual, the communities in which they live, and the resources of the University to enhance the academic experience for all. LiveWell supports the personal and social development by providing evidence-based information and education to help enhance life skills. Our mission is to engage, support, and to prepare individuals with the skills and knowledge that will benefit them throughout their time at UW and beyond.


LiveWell is committed to promoting respect, understanding and appreciation of differences, and the constructive expression of ideas. LiveWell provides services to all students with respect and honoring students’ individual identity, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, color, creed, religion, national origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ability, or socioeconomic status.

Several of LiveWell’s programs and services are proudly funded by the Services & Activities Fee (SAF)!
